Historic Green County, KY: Holmon Lewis, Summersville, KY

2013-02-12 - Downtown Summersville, KY - Photo by Fayette Hewett Smith. Larry Smith, Operations Manager, 99.9 FM The Big Dawg, in Campbellsville, KY has fond memories of this building, regrettably razed about two years ago, which was once the main market in his native Summersville, Green County, KY. "The business was owned by Holmon Lewis, the father of Summersville's leading merchant, Leon Lewis, Sr., the father of Columbia's Leon Lewis, Jr., owner of Jeffries Hardware on Jamestown Hill," Larry Smith reports. "The store above was on KY 323, the turn off KY 61 toward Taylor County. "Leon, Senior, is proprietor of Summersville's leading deli/grocery and post office, still thriving on KY 61 (Hodgenville Road) in Summersville. From the looks of the cars, the H.Hunter Durham-esque courtin' car two tone Chevrolet two tone four door, ca 1948, the photo would have been taken along about then." Fayette Hewett Smith was Larry Smith's grandfather, and father of recently deceased Mr. Fayette (F.H.) Smith, Green Co., KY (1924-2011)
